Secondary Nav

expr1,expr2......exprn : Any JavaScript expressions.

Example of document Object : writeln() method

In the following web document, the writeln() method writes the title, a newline character and the url of the document.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>JavaScript document Object - writeln() method</title>
<h1 style="color: red">JavaScript document Object : writeln() method</h1>
<hr />
<script type="text/javascript">
//This is done to make the following JavaScript code compatible to XHTML. <![CDATA[
document.writeln("Title : ",document.title);
document.writeln("Url : ",document.URL);

Note : If document.writeln is used to insert new line characters by JavaScript itself, then entire script element (start tag, content and end tag) must be wrapped with a pair of html pre tags.
